Property Value

Type Default Description


A System.Drawing.Image descendant representing the group’s background image.


To specify a background image for all groups, use the NavBarControl.GroupBackgroundImage property. The BackgroundImage property allows you to specify a background image for individual groups. The BackgroundImage property has a higher priority.

Groups must have transparent background colors in order to make their background images visible. To specify a transparent background color for a group, use the control’s Appearance.GroupBackGround.BackColor or the group’s AppearanceBackground.BackColor property.


Background images are not supported in skinning paint schemes. Use the NavBarControl.LookAndFeel property to specify a paint scheme.
